Carry more stuff!

Slime Rancher 2 has a lot of unlockable upgrades and abilities for players to work towards as they play through the game. Many of these upgrades are useful, but nearing the top of the list is the Extra Tank upgrade. This is a bit more complex to unlock than others, so it's unlikely that players will be able to obtain it at the start of a new run, but it's well worth the effort.

  • 10 Rock Plorts - Dropped by Rock Slimes when they are fed.
  • 10 Silky Sand - This item is obtained using the Resource Harvester, which is another upgrade unlocked via the Fabricator.
